Description
This is a four-unit version of the basic introductory and survey course in the business organization area that focuses entirely on corporation law.  Exclusive emphasis is placed on conducting business in a corporate form.  The course emphasizes the formation, financing, operation and control of corporations.  It examines both closely-held corporations and publicly-held corporations.  Issues of federal law discussed in connection with the publicly-held corporation include the registration of new issues of securities, exemption from the requirements of registration, proxy regulation and the regulation of insider trading.

This section of Corporations focuses on the analysis and discussion of written problem sets.  There are no prerequisites.  Unincorporated business organizations are covered in the separate course Agency, Partnerships and LLCs.

A student may not receive credit for both Corporations and Business Associations or Business Associations (Enriched).
